Our strategy aims to integrate soft urban interventions based on natural, bio-algae, and mechanical filtering solutions into existing infrastructures. All equipment will be divided in two categories: public and residential, to not only conserve the existing surroundings but also improve it. Furthermore, we are introducing new sustainable equipment, updating materiality, and enhancing design potential.

Uses |

Natural solutions are intertwined into both existing and newly designed structures. Each element is designed to purify the atmospheric air by absorbing CO2 and releasing oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. At the same time, providing a buffer of clean air between the streets and inhabitable spaces.
 
Additionally, green components reduce heat island effect while providing engaging, aesthetical, and comfortable spaces.

Process |

Photobioreactors (PBRs) are transparent tubes flowing with a mix of water, algae, nutrients, and carbon dioxide. When the micro-algae solution is exposed to sunlight the solar radiation activates biomass production and increases based on sun intensity. Afterward, the elements are harvested and separated: water is recycled back into the photobioreactors while algae is used to develop byproducts, such as biofuel and energy.

Uses |

Photobioreactors functioning in a closed loop system generates minimal waste by recycling wastewater, producing energy, and providing an alternative to fossil fuels. Additionally, micro-algae is estimated to absorb 400 times more carbon dioxide than trees and plants. With that in mind, we integrated PBRs into existing buildings and urban landscapes in order to streamline air purification.

Uses |

Artificial filtering systems are used to improve air quality in urban settings with airborne particulate matter or carbon dioxide. The pollution levels, spatial dimensions, and functions determine the size and number of units needed in a particular area; making the equipment flexible to any environment.
